Thousands of pounds were raised for the Swaffham and Litcham Home Hospice during a mass fundraising walk at the weekend.

Around 25 teams took part in the Relay Together event, which was held at the town's rugby club on Sunday.

The groups completed the walk around the lower pitch of the North Pickenham Road ground.

Supporters were also able to enjoy a host of stalls and activities during the afternoon, as well as a barbecue.

Fundraising committee chairman Adrian Adcock said the afternoon was expected to raise around £3,500 for the hospice, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

The afternoon also included a summer draw offering 30 prizes, many of which were donated by donated by local companies.

Mr Adcock said: "It was a brilliant day enjoyed by those attending.

"Thanks are due to the Swaffham Rugby Club who allowed the Home Hospice the use of their facilities, to Pot of Gold for providing music for the majority of the afternoon, to the stallholders for their support and to Subway for water provision for the walkers.

"Thanks are also due to the members of the fundraising committee who put much effort into ensuring that the event would be the success it undoubtedly was."

Its next scheduled fundraising event is a garden party on August 12.
